Protect the most vulnerable devices – the mobile ones.
People always talk about protecting their smartphones by utilizing cases, but what some don’t always think about is that there are other vulnerable mobile devices out there like gaming consoles and external hard drives. Fortunately, accessory designer Tomtoc has some wonderful hard shell cases available for both the Nintendo Switch and 2.5″ hard drives. I’ve had the chance to use both of them and I am very impressed with the quality you receive with these inexpensive accessories.
Slim Nintendo Switch Case
This lightweight, stylish case was designed with the gamer in mind. It’s custom-made to protect the Switch during transportation from place to place. The case provides all-around protection using high-quality elements for fabrication like EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate), which has been used in many different applications like military, medical, and industrial devices. This EVA hard shell case is structured to protect the Switch from everyday use as well as accidental drops. The inside of the case has an impressive high-quality flannelette cloth that protects the screen from scratches.
The case has an interior flap that contains slots for 8 game cards. This is wrapped in the soft flannelette cloth, too. Because the case was designed as a ‘slim’ case, there isn’t any room inside the case for accessories or charging cables, but Tomtoc provides an accessory pouch for storage of these items. It’s a heavy velvet material and large enough to accommodate all your accessory needs. I’ve been very impressed with this case. It’s easy to store and I love that the molding actually shows the controls of the Switch on the exterior of the case. It’s unique and stylish.

External Hard Drive Case for 2.5″
This is probably the best hardshell case I’ve seen for hard drives. Not only is it spacious, but it’s also very protective. The case has the same flannelette material as the Switch case, but it’s softer in my opinion. There is also a premium YKK zipper fixture that has a long lifespan (tested with repeated pulls more than 20,000 times). The case is multi-functional. The case comes with a storage sheet similar to the Switch, but instead of it being for game cartridges, it’s designed to hold SD cards or flash drives. In addition to the recess area built for the hard drive, there is also an interior pocket which could be used for a second hard drive or cables. Tomtoc also states that this case could house portable photo printers such as the HIP Sprocket Portable Photo printer or the Polaroid ZIP Mobile Printer. At this point, I’ve only really tried out hard drives so I can’t say about how well the other products fit.
Data storage is an essential part of a photographer’s life. You have to have reliable mobile storage and it has to stay with you. The Tomtoc External Hard Drive Case helps to protect these vulnerable devices from dents, dings, and impact damage. Even though it’s not ‘slim’ in design, the case doesn’t take up a lot of room in your computer bag or backpack. Because it holds so much within its pockets, this is an easy sell to me. It’s incredibly affordable at only $12 per case.

Tomtoc has made some clear winners as far as cases go. The Switch case and the hard drive case provide solid protection at modest prices. For the price, these are some of the best cases I’ve ever had my hands out and I would recommend them to any type of user.
